The MINI JCW Team is traveling to Road America for rounds eleven and twelve of the SRO TC America series.
The 4.025 mile, 13-turn Road America is located in Elkhart Lake Wisconsin. It’s a track the team has visited plenty of times and they came away with a second place finish last season while competing in IMSA.
Mark Pombo in the #59 STEP MINI JCW dominated at the teams last stop in Watkin Glens. Winning both races that weekend and three in a row overall.
That performance has catapulted the team to the top of the team championship standings.
Additionally Pombo has reasserted himself as a contender for the driver’s championship. He currently resides in third, closing a 50+ point gap down to 15 heading into this weekend.
Nate Norenberg will once again be behind the wheel of the #60 MINI JCW. He has driven well at Road America in the past an will look for another podium finish this weekend.
Also returning this weekend will be Tomas Mejia in the #62 Pledge to Humanity MINI JCW. The teenager had a very strong run in his debut for the team at Watkins Glen. He was competitive in both events and came away with a podium finish in race two.
Mat Pombo will be replacing team owner Luis Perocarpi in the #61 STEP and MINIDealerCareers.com MINI JCW.
Mat certainly isn’t new to the team. He had multiple victories while driving for the team in IMSA, and helped lead them to the Manufacturer’s championship last season.
This will be his first race with the team since they joined TC America. But his experience with both MINI and Road America means he should be able to jump right into the fight.
There will be two 40-minute races spread across two days. Race one takes place on Saturday September 21 at 5:05 PM EST. Race two is the following Sunday September 22 at 12:10 PM EST.
If you can’t make it out to the track you can catch the livestream at TCAmerica.us/live.
